Faster Renderings

Recommended Posts

Anyone have tips for faster renderings?


1- Anyone use a cloud based service?

2- If I need to buy a new PC, what specs should I get? (My Current PC: Windows 7, 8GB ram, 3.00GHz Intel i5-3330)

if it's a laptop , you may have a low power graphics card if the Standard view is slow...try vector view in that case and only switch to Standard view when needed to take a pic for a Client for example.


If you mean Raytraces , that is all CPU done , more cores is better but there are also multiple ways to reduce the time for those like not using point lights and keep the size to 1280 x 720.


you should of asked last week before the Black Friday sales ........ any "gaming computer" with a Nvidia card should get the job done ..... but depends on you budget too.

      I Just wanted to introduce myself. I’ve been in the building business for 25 plus years, mainly remodeling, (some new homes). Cabinet maker, finish carpenter, remodeler among other things. (I know how things go together!) Can communicate with Architects, builders & remodelers well. Have been certified in & using Chief since version 6. Have been working remotely all over the country for many years. I work fast & reasonably, usually from a matter of days to 2 weeks turn around time. Please see my work here: Plan examples & references available on request.   Thank You for Considering me, Tom Flachbart from The Project Designers   603 770 6078   Example_Plans.pdf

      I have been designing and drafting Residential and Commercial buildings for 20 years. I am available to do drafting for any size project. 
      I am fully versed in AutoCAD (started with AutoCAD 9 - NOT a windows program) and am fairly new to Chief.  I started using Home Designer Pro 2017, 2018 and then found the program was quite a bit different from AutoCAD.  Upon review of the Chief Archiect Premier X8, I decided to switch to the more powerful program.  I have used X8, X9 and now X10.  Would love to have the opportunity to design more houses or buildings using this program.
      I have drafted well over 100 residential homes.  I also have drafted Commercial buildings.   
      I live in British Columbia, and have designed houses for municipalities in BC as well as Alberta and New Brunswick.  I am fairly knowledgeable on the BC Building code and its requirements when it comes to residential houses in BC.  Municipalities I have worked with include: Calgary, Whistler, Vancouver, Williams Lake, Dawson Creek, Fort St. John, Lake Country, Penticton, Oliver, Osoyoos, Vernon and Moncton NB.
      I am currently using Chief Architect Premier X10 as well as AutoCAD Architecture 2014.
